Contemporary without the bells and whistles, the Cristal from Martiniano is a feminine sandal with intriguing details. Three transparent straps across the toe hold the foot, self-tie kid leather strap with tapered ends hugs the ankle. Lightly padded kid leather insole, natural leather out sole, stacked leather heel with heel cap. 100% Italian Kid Leather, 100% Plastic Handmade in Argentina
Renowned for the glove shoe, footwear designer Martiniano Lopez Crozet happened up on a cult following after a fairly unusual foray into the fashion world. He spent 16 years as part of a performance art duo before designing a sleek, ballet flat-like shoe for men using the same Italian kid leather favored by Salvatore Ferragamo. The cool silhouette was adopted by women and the rest, as they say, is history.
